I had an apppointment for 8:30 am. When I pulled into the parking lot I noticed there was no line.
I parked and went inside. I walked down the hall and to the left. The waiting room was empty. I was the only one in there. I had a look of confusion on my face as I looked inside the testing room.
"Can I help you?" ask officer Drab. "Yes, I have an appointment for a renewal" I replied. "Step on in here and we can go ahead and get started" he said.
All I had to do was varify may information. Then I had to step over to the camera. They gave me three seconds to make another five year photo impression. I got one chance! "Smile".
Next I had to read the top line of the eye chart. Because of the way the eye rest was tilted, I read the bottom line by accident. "You read the wrong line. Now read the top line this time" said officer Smartypants".
Now, think a minute. Wouldn't you think the bottom line which is smaller would have been acceptable?
Then the question..."Are you still a donor?" She asked. "Yes Maam, I am", I said with no hesitation.
I was all done and back to work in no time. It took all of 10 minutes to get my license renewed. Thats a first!!! I also think that was quicker than If I had done it online.
My new licnese came in the mail with in a week. As my husband examined them, we get into this little argument over being a donor. "So, your still a donor?!?!" He asked. As he saw the little red heart next to my photo. I replied, " Yes! I have always been a donor and im proud of it".
This is something we disagree on. He does not like the idea of being a donor and chooses never to be one. He has this idea that if im in serious condition in the hospital and the person down the hall needs my heart, the doctors will let me die if the money is right. I have often thought about this but I would think my family would fight to the end to make sure the doctors do all they can to save me first.
I love the idea that the death of me might save another. That way I can live on. My soul will be in heaven but my body parts will be free game to the ones that need it. How selfish it would be to put it all in the ground and not share life.
Are you a donor? Do you feel like my husband does about this issue? Just curious. It will not change my mind though.
